When we see a rainbow after a rain we notice all the various colors.  That is what makes a rainbow, variety of light colors.  Without the rainbow, we think of the light of the sun as “bright,” or “light” or “not darkness.”  It is only in the rainbow that we see the multi-colors of the one light.  Each of us is one of the colors of the Creator Light, the Spiritual Light, if you will.  The spiritual path is to discover your color and let it shine brightly for others.  So much energy is used up trying to be someone else’s color because we have not discovered our own.  We dress like others, wear our hair like others, talk like others, so that we can fit in and feel a part of the “group” we admire.  But this effort to feel a part of, also leaves us feeling apart from our truest self.  So I might admire another priest, another runner, another person of talent, but I cannot waste time trying to be that person.  I am uniquely me, made to reflect my Creator, as ME.  My meditation intends to let go of group culture to discover and empower ME to be ME.  


  1. This was just what I needed to hear. I will keep this and refer back to it when my ego tries to keep me away, apart from, my true self and I will remember my true connection with my higher power makes me a part of that love within the rainbow. Thank you, Father Ryan. You hit it out of the park.

  2. Makes me feel that I might have a place in His plan. THXALOT!
